When detoxing is done right, detox has many great benefits that will help rev up your body by helping eliminate toxins from your blood, intestines, lungs, skin and lymph. And even though your lungs, skin, kidneys, intestines and especially your liver are already detoxifying your body 24 hours 7 days a week, we don’t always easily release sweat, urine or stool as often as needed to rid toxins from our body. So go and consult a doctor for more information and read the 5 health benefits of detox.
5 Health Benefits of Detox:
1) Flushing Out Waste:
Detox has many benefits but the most recognized benefit is releasing waste (that means poop). The toxins of a backed-up colon can deteriorate its walls, absorb into your bloodstream, cause sicknesses like the cold or flu and contaminate other parts of your body. Having a healthy colon is having a healthy digestive, metabolism and immune system to name a few.
2) Strong Immune System:
When you have a strong immune system you’re less likely to get sick. The nutrients absorbed from detoxing – like calcium and vitamin C – strengthen your immune system to better detect a wide variety of viruses that can cause minor to serious illnesses.
3) Energy Boost:
When detoxing, it is very likely that you will eliminate caffeine, enriched flour, saturated sugar and fat during your diet plan. Replacing those components with fruits and vegetables will give you longer energy boosts without the crash.
4) Lose Weight:
It seems that everyone’s goal is to lose weight rather than just being healthy. But if that’s what you’re looking for then detox or cleansing – as some people refer to it – will do that for you. Flushing out your system from toxins and waste while boosting your metabolism – the part of your body that distracts fuel from the food you eat and converts it to energy – will give you a slimmer and healthier body.
5) Healthier & Happier Attitude:
When you feel good the world becomes an oyster (but don’t eat this oyster… it’s the world). Distracting toxins from your body and replacing it with natural sugars and healthy minerals will give you the energy to stay positive and be happier.
